Re: PAl to NSTC

You can use a free program called ifoedit to trick your ntsc only dvd player to play pal discs. It's not too hard to quickly edit the (I think) ifo files to make the DVD player think the video is ntsc. It doesn't transcode the video, just changes some info in some small files... Google it! IfoEdit

As for why some cheapo DVD players do PAL / NTSC and more expensive ones don't: I don't know really why, but the more complicated they make a DVD player and the more $$$ they throw at it in development, the less likely it'll be compatible. Best bet is get a super disc-count cheapo player alongside your supreme expensive players!
